Standards are a powerful tool for organisations that support innovation and want increased productivity. Business costs and risks can be minimised, internal processes streamlined and communication improved.
Standards allow a company to:
  • attract and assure customers
  • demonstrate market leadership
  • create competitive advantage
  • develop and maintain best practice
 

Standards are Powerful Marketing Tools

The ability to demonstrate compliance with widely recognised and respected standards is an effective means of standing out in a competitive marketplace. In addition, manufacturing products or supplying services to appropriate standards maximises their compatibility with those manufactured or offered by others, thereby increasing potential sales and widespread acceptance.
 

Standards are what Customers want

Customers look for the independent verification that a technical standard provides. Businesses whose products and practices consistently stand up to rigorous examination, are instantly recognisable and respected.

ISO 9001 Quality Standard


By far the world’s most established quality framework, it sets the standard not only for quality management systems, but management systems in general.

ISO 14001 Environmental Standard


An internationally accepted standard that sets out how you can go about putting in place an effective Environmental Management System, addressing the balance between maintaining profitability and reducing environmental impact.
 

OHSAS 18001 Safety Standard


A system to help you manage major accident risks and health and safety, achieve operational efficiency, provide assurance of management control and create confidence among stakeholders. Implement an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) as part of a risk management strategy to address changing legislation and protect their workforce.

An OHSMS promotes a safe and healthy working environment by providing a framework that allows your organisation to consistently identify and control its health and safety risks, reduce the potential for accidents, aid legislative compliance and improve overall performance.
 

ISO 22301 Business Continuity


Continued operations in the event of serious disruption, whether due to a major disaster or a minor incident, is a fundamental requirement for any organisation. The standard is designed to keep your business going during the most challenging and unexpected circumstances – protecting your staff, preserving your reputation and providing the ability to continue to operate and trade.
